.6 nozzle in U3

Recommended Posts

You can select either the 0.4 or the 0.8 and manually change the line width.You may have to experiment a bit to make sure you do not over extrude or under extrude. Layer heights will work just the same though. :)

You will mostly be better off selecting the AA0.4 as this will give you more profiles vs using a 0.8 as a starting point.  When you made the changes to the priofile, like line width around 0,55 - 0,6  and other stuff you need, safe as a new profile, call it something with 0.6 in the name and next time you good to go.

I'm currently testing a Solex Hardcore 0.6 as well. Not done yet, but, at least for a 0.3 layer width, you'll want to print slower and hotter with PLA. The standard 200°C and 70mm/s of the generic profile results in underextrusion. I'm currently testing at 220°C and around 50mm/s. Still not that good, maybe 215°C would make the PLA less viscous.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
